For the dough:

  • cup whole spelt flour (or regular all-purpose flour if you prefer)
  • 1 stick cold butter cut to cubes
  • 4 tablespoon powdered sugar
  • pinch salt
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 egg

For the filling:

  • 2-3 nectarines cut
  • 5 tablespoon sugar (you can add more if you prefer a sweeter taste)
  • 2 tablespoon  ground almonds


  • 2 tablespoon sliced almonds


  • In a food processor with a steel blade, place the flour, butter, powdered sugar, vanilla, and salt. Process until a crumbly mixture is obtained.
  • Add the egg and continue to process until the dough lumps are formed.
  • Transfer the dough to a lightly floured work surface and form a disc shape.
  • Wrap the dough in plastic wrap and cool in the refrigerator for an hour.
  • Set the oven to 180°C / 360°F fan.
  • On a floured surface, roll out the dough to a 3-4 mm thick sheet.
  • Spread the ground almond in the center of the dough.
  • Place the cut nectarines on it and in a spiral shape as much as possible. Note, it does not need to be too tidy.
  • Sprinkle 4 tablespoons of sugar on the nectarine.
  • Fold the dough edges onto the filling. Try to catch all of the filling and avoid any holes on the sides.
  • Sprinkle the last tablespoon of sugar on the dough edges.
